About Me

I'm originally from Germany, but have lived in the UK for going on half my life at this point. I started tutoring as a teenager back home by supporting younger students in English, as well as teaching guitar lessons as a part-time job. In my free time I enjoy cycling, learning languages, and playing the guitar, though I wish I had more time for all of these.

Tutor Experience

I am Head of Economics and also teach A Level Politics at a successful independent school in London, but I'm a bit of a social science jack of all trades. I studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I started tutoring online years ago (pre-Covid), before starting my career as a secondary school teacher. I have recently returned to Spires for the experience of helping an individual student master a subject they find tricky – I just really enjoy helping someone else make sense of Economics and Politics. While I very much enjoy tutoring A Level, I love teaching university-level Economics and Politics courses as well, though I particularly like Microeconomics, Industrial Organisation, Game Theory, and International Economics,. (with the occasional IS/LM or 3-equation macro model thrown in). If you’re not sure whether I can help, drop me a message and describe the module you want me to help with!

Topic Expertise

I can teach all parts of the A Level syllabus, and I've delivered all parts of Edexcel and AQA Economics as a school teacher. I have recently been an examiner for Paper 3 (the synoptic paper) with AQA. In A level Politics, my favourite topics are UK Government and Politics, though in university level Political Science, my expertise is more in authoritarian regimes, especially in countries that were formerly part of the USSR. See my biography above for more information on my expertise in university-level Economics.
